  The present study was conducted on 472 cattle (cows 370 and heifers 102) reared in a rural tract comprising of 6 villages in and around the veterinary faculty of the university. Artificial insemination was carried out to all the animals with frozen thawed semen having at least 50% post-thaw motility. Conception Rate (CR) and number of services per conception (NSC) were evaluated. Effect of breed, parity, season, estrus intensity and time of insemination in CR was also determined. Overall CR and NSC recorded were 69.09 and 1.72%, respectively. The CR of the cows was significantly (p<0.05) affected by estrus intensity; being highest in good (75.00%) and lower (60.87%) and lowest (57.89%) in moderate and weak estrus, respectively. No significant variation in CR was observed with respect to breed, parity, season and time of insemination. However, highest values were obtained in crossbred Jersey (70.16%), 3rd parity (74.00%), Summer season (73.91%) and insemination at 16±2 (73.81%) hours following onset of behavioral estrus. Sex ratio (male: female) of the calves born from conceived animals was 1:1.53. From this study it is concluded that under agro-climatic conditions of Kashmir to achieve maximum CR cows should be inseminated during 16-22 h following onset of behavioral estrus.

  The adequacy of analgesia using meloxicam and ketoprofen was assessed in 12 male stray dogs following pinhole castration. The analgesics were started preemptively and repeated daily up to 72 h post castration. The study was conducted under blind conditions. The pain assessment was made adopting “The University of Melbourne Pain Scale” (UMPS) preoperatively and at 06, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84 and 96 h post operatively. Mean±SD total pain score values in animals of meloxicam group were highest MTPS (7.5) at 48 h but in animals of ketoprofen group the highest score (8.3) was recorded at 12 and 24 h following castration. In both the groups, lowest values (3.5, 2.7, respectively) were obtained preoperatively (0 h). The values in both the groups were significantly (p<0.05) higher continuously from 6 to 84 h following castration and showed decreasing trend towards the end of observation period. The values obtained at the last observation period (96 h) was slightly more and equal in both the groups than the values obtained preoperatively. Between the groups, the values did not differ significantly (p>0.05) at any time interval. The dogs were maintained for one month and were watched for any complications and adverse reactions of the analgesic drugs used. Vomiting, diarrhea or gross evidence of fecal blood did not occur in any of the dogs throughout the study period. In summary both drugs provided good and similar analgesia. However, administration of one more dose of the analgesic is recommended at 96 h post ligation.
